The new president of the NRA is Oliver North

The National Rifle Association announced that its new president will be Oliver North, Fox News correspondent and central player in the Iran-Contra scandal of the late 1980s under president Ronald Reagan during which North and his cronies illegally sold arms to Iran and diverted the funds to the anti-Communist Contras in Nicaragua.

"Oliver North is, hands down, the absolute best choice to lead our NRA Board, to fully engage with our members, and to unflinchingly stand and fight for the great freedoms he has defended his entire life," NRA executive vice president and CEO Wayne LaPierre said.
